Welcome to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python. This guide is currently under heavy active development. If you’d like to help, fork us on GitHub! This opinionated guide exists to provide both novice and expert Python developers a best-practice handbook to the installation, configuration, and usage of Python on a daily basis. Getting Started This part of the guide focuses on setting up your Python environment.
Text Processing in Python David Mertz Intermediate This is an example-driven, hands on tutorial that carefully teaches programmers how to accomplish numerous text processing tasks using Python.
There’s a lot of outdated information on the Web that leads new PHP users astray, propagating bad practices and insecure code. PHP: The Right Way is an easy-to-read, quick reference for PHP popular coding standards, links to authoritative tutorials around the Web and what the contributors consider to be best practices at the present time. There is no canonical way to use PHP. This website aims to introduce new PHP developers to some topics which they may not discover until it is too late, and aims to give seasoned pros some fresh ideas on those topics they’ve been doing for years without ever reconsidering. This website will also not tell you which tools to use, but instead offer suggestions for multiple options, when possible explaining the differences in approach and use-case.
AppCoda Community - Learn iOS Programming and Build iPhone App iOS 7 brings along new rules and new Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) that should be followed by all developers. One of those guidelines regarding the all brand-new look and feel, highlights the fact that an application’s interface should not compete with the content, nor distracting users from it, but supporting it in the best possible way. This fact is called deference and, along with some more new HI guidelines, makes clear that Apple with iOS 7 focuses on the content and on the way it’s presented.
About The Course This course covers a broad range of topics in natural language processing, including word and sentence tokenization, text classification and sentiment analysis, spelling correction, information extraction, parsing, meaning extraction, and question answering, We will also introduce the underlying theory from probability, statistics, and machine learning that are crucial for the field, and cover fundamental algorithms like n-gram language modeling, naive bayes and maxent classifiers, sequence models like Hidden Markov Models, probabilistic dependency and constituent parsing, and vector-space models of meaning. We are offering this course on Natural Language Processing free and online to students worldwide, continuing Stanford's exciting forays into large scale online instruction. Students have access to screencast lecture videos, are given quiz questions, assignments and exams, receive regular feedback on progress, and can participate in a discussion forum.
loading About The Course This course teaches fundamental processes of software engineering using the highly-productive Agile development method for Software as a Service (SaaS) using Ruby on Rails. This is not a "web programming" course: the emphasis is on learning the processes, tools and concepts, using SaaS as the vehicle.
What are Probabilistic Graphical Models? Uncertainty is unavoidable in real-world applications: we can almost never predict with certainty what will happen in the future, and even in the present and the past, many important aspects of the world are not observed with certainty. Probability theory gives us the basic foundation to model our beliefs about the different possible states of the world, and to update these beliefs as new evidence is obtained.

I had to move the Node book to ./node/ since I hadn't planned on writing multiple books when I initially set up this subdomain. From now, I'll put things in directories under book.mixu.net. Distributed systems: for fun and profit

Teach Yourself to Program Do you want to build a game for Android, a theme for your blog or a twitter desktop client? Have a great idea but lack the development chops to take it from the pages of your legal pad to the App Store? Want to make sure your kid learns to program, even though your local school system may not offer the best options? This post should give you a good starting point for learning to program. We have many developers who read ReadWriteWeb, so this post is meant to both be a help for aspiring programmers and a place for those of you with much more knowledge than I, to drop in suggestions. Please let me know what we've inevitably left out.
Why SSH? As recently as a 2001, it was not uncommon to log in to a remote Unix system using telnet. Telnet is just above netcat in protocol sophistication, which means that passwords were sent in the clear. As wifi proliferated, telnet went from security nuissance to security disaster. As an undergrad, I remember running ethereal (now wireshark) in the school commons area, snagging about a dozen root passwords in an hour. SSH, which encrypts and authenticates connections, had been in development since 1995, but it seemed to become adopted nearly universally and almost overnight around 2002.

Happy Fun Coding
About a week ago, I began working on a new article about Backbone.js. It was due to cover some concepts and insights intermediate or advanced users might appreciate, but I found myself wanting to reference topics beginners might need to know if they wanted to get the most out it. Quite a few of them. In the end, I decided it might make more sense to just write a book on Backbone instead. Something free, targeted at developers of all levels, that I could reguarly update easily and perhaps get some input on from the community (if they were up for it). Backbone Fundamentals – A Free Work-In-Progress Book For Developers Of All Levels
Since this post got quite popular I decided to incorporate some of the excellent suggestions posted in the comments, so this list now has more than 50 books in it. BTW: I’m not very strict on the definition of “ebook”, some of them are really just HTML versions of books. [UPDATED: 2012-01-18] Learning a new programming language always is fun and there are many great books legally available for free online. Here’s a selection of 30 of them: Lisp/Scheme:Common Lisp: A Gentle Introduction to Symbolic ComputationHow to Design ProgramsInterpreting Lisp (PDF, suggested by Gary Knott)Let Over LambdaOn LispPractical Common LispProgramming in Emacs LispProgramming Languages.
